I don't buy new cars -- I'd be looking at used.
I live in Ontario, so I get reamed on insurance like the rest of the province. Maintenance costs? I have spent a frightening (well, to me anyway) amount of money on this car. It wouldn't match up with new payments but it's pretty bad. Close to half of what I paid for the car, anyway.
It goes back to the age old problem -- I don't mind working on cars but I am tired of dealing with this
car. I am sick of repairs that pile up endlessly, waiting for me to have the time, to deal with them. Or worse, get so frustrated that I pay someone else to deal with them.
I might change my mind, but this feels like a last straw to me.
